"Wreck-It Ralph," starring John C. Reilly, Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch, gives one video game villain a shot at playing the hero
John C. Reilly turns out to play a softie in "Wreck-It Ralph," though his video game character's name might suggest the opposite.
Reilly lends his voice to the title role as Wreck-It Ralph, a hyper-aggressive bad guy who wants to distance himself from his one-dimensional duty to destroy everything in his path in an old-school video game.
Despite his good intentions, however, he ends up unleashing a lethal enemy in a modern-day shooter game, forcing him to save the day and find his place in the video game realm.
The animation looks flawless, and with an endearing cast — who flaunt their talents in a villains' support group in the clip below — this could be another Disney hit in the making.
